DeMille as Editor
12 December 2003 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This film is almost like a mission statement of what the 58 year old Cecil B. DeMille tried to achieve in filmmaking: the story of America and its people prior to the Revolution to the present day. In order to do this he distorted history to appeal to a middle class audience.
